Coronavirus (COVID-19)—Supreme Court gives update on virtual hearings

The Supreme Court has given an update on the conduct of hearings for the Hilary and Easter Terms, in light of ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.  A header on its website reads: ‘In line with the latest government guidance the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom building will be closed for the coming weeks. We anticipate that hearings and judgments in the Hilary term (11 January–31 March 2021) and the Easter term (13 April–28 May 2021) will be conducted virtually, via WebEx video conferencing, and are available to watch live and on-demand. Staff and justices will work remotely except for essential activities that require attendance in the building. We have put in measures to ensure that the building is compliant with government guidance.’
